L13 Winter 2008 : Week 2 BotW

Bet of the Week comes from Week 1 winner Martin Stafford – a lot of thought gone into this!

In these difficult economic times it may be better to pursue shorter prices and if it were my last fiver, I’d commit Wigan heresy and back Saint Helens in the rugby league grand final, there is poor value on offer though a 8.5 point handicap will only give 6/4 in a two horse race…

However in the spirit of PAS, its always better to go for a football accumulator…

Landing 3 draws will pay you approx 30/1 so split the fiver in a on an optimistic acca

Sunday has plenty of draws: Chelsea v Villa, Everton v Newcastle and Man City v Liverpool all to draw £2.50

You could always use the other £2.50 to then cover the 3 doubles in some face saving cover bet or because someone has to win at chelsea sooner or later chase value by putting the other £2.50 on Villa to win at chelsea (11/2 and probably longer on betfair)

(obviously a Chelsea win would ruin this so if you want to play safe back Saints on saturday in the M62 rugby grand final)

Confused? Play safe? Never!

I’ll break it down and make it simple for you (and edit the choices!)

  • £2.50 on St Helen’s to win with a 8.5 point handicap @ 6/4
  • £2.50 on Chelsea / Everton / Man City draw treble @ 30/1

Follow it if you dare!


Result: LOSE! -£5
